Research Center for Conservation of Cultural Relics (RCCCR

The first academic restoration workshop in Iran was organized by the French archeological excavation campaign in Susa, Khuzestan Province in 1879. About 100 years later, the first conservation laboratory was established within the Iranian Archaeological Center (ICAR) in 1972. Finally, in 1997, the present Research Center for Conservation of Cultural Relics was established as one of the five Research Centers of the RICHT.
